@JohnElliottCo will the merinos restock?
post #11777 of 25829

Been awhile since I copped the villain but I think the olive is a must have. What is the consensus on sizing for villains. Go TTS or size up? Does terry stretch out a lot after a year or two.

I used to size up but then it would stretch and become too big. Now I go tts, it starts tight but stretches to perfection after a few wears. I'm 5'7, 150lbs for reference and wear M in villains/t's. Thinking on grabbing my first pair of escobars tomo. Any suggestions on sizing? I wear a 28 in cast/coast. Small in Nike tech fleece sweats. Small seems like the right choice as long as they stretch out a bit

Same size as me. Get a small.

How long did it take to stretch? I sized up to a large in my black one. Worn it a bunch since I got it about 3 months ago and haven't experienced any stretching but now I'm wondering if I should've went medium.

If you worn it a bunch of times, it's probably stretched as much as it will. It doesn't grow by sizes. Just gets a bit looser that's it.

As stated above^ it will only get a little bit looser. Won't drastically stretch a full size

Any help is appreciated

I order from Toronto and I get dinged duties/taxes every single time I order. I think there's been one time where I haven't been charged duties and it was on a smaller order. It's usually around 90-100 bucks on average if you are buying a few pieces each time.

 

Not sure what effect NAFTA has on this kind of thing but it hasn't been good for me at least :P.

 

Looking forward to copping one of the hooded villians which will be my first.

 

I want the esco's too but I am still deciding on whether or not to go M or large.  I have both sizes and they both fit, it's tough and I guess just a matter of preference.

That's a bummer. I'm also in Toronto, but based on my 9-10 orders direct from JE, I have only got dinged for duties/taxes twice. I find it has been for larger orders - if I just ordered one villain, I would be fine. Just make sure you pick USPS for shipping.

This is very true. I experienced the same thing, I've made many orders of 2-3 pieces each shipping to China with USPS. I did not get taxed a single time for USPS, but when I used DHL express which is supposed to be 3 business days, it took more than 3 weeks to get it cleared and I had to pay 80 bucks in taxes/duties. Make sure you choose the USPS option because it will be faster and the chances of getting taxed is quite low.

I might get the escobars. Love that color. Olive villain is tempting too but I 5 villains would be overkill

Thinking about the exact same thing as you...charcoal escos is a must-cop because i only have one pair of escos, but contemplating on whether or not I should cop the olive villain...Already have the villain in black, sand, midnight, and charcoal...

I'm 5'6" 155lbs.  I just recently purchased Escobars in a Medium and they are working out for me just fine.  I was concerned about whether or not to go with Small or Medium... so I contacted JE directly.  They recommended the Mediums and I am very happy with the fit.  JE made it very clear that the sweats run very slim.  Once that was made clear - I really had no issues copping the Mediums.

Yea, I like the villain but then it feels like you are wearing the same thing all the time when you own so many. Plus I don't really wear mine that often that I need so many.

I'm your weight and an inch taller. I wear a small but it honestly depends on your build too. I have skinny legs so the small fits. If you hsve bigger thighs and calves then a medium can easily work. I'm wearing a pair of small shorts here.
